Despite being in the title, the Book of Secrets isn't mentioned until nearly an hour into this movie's run time. See more »
While in the City of Gold, Riley handles a very large gold brick with one hand and easily places it in his bag. A gold brick as large as the one pictured would weigh in the neighborhood of 150lbs and would require two or more people to lift. See more »
It was a good movie but not as good as the first one. I think that its just the same story as the first one with very little changes. Treasure hunter Ben Gates tries to clean its name by looking for an ancient treasure. The first half of the movie is kinda slow and even tiresome, too much talking and very little action. But it gets better on the second part towards to the end. The cast is excellent, Nicolas Cage in a role he knows very well, Jon Voight as Cage fathers is very convincing, Ed Harris is the bad guy that the only thing he wants is to find the treasure and keep it to himself, Harvey Keitel as an FBI agent wit a brief but convincing performance and Helen Mirren as Nicola's mother with a good and even funny performance. Although this movie isn't the greatest thing, it is very enjoyable and entertaining, perfect to spend some time with the family.
